About Lee

IELTS examiner available for exam preparation classes

** Use my experience as an IELTS examiner to help you pass your exam! **

If you need to pass IELTS quickly, then look no further as 98% of my students pass the test with Band 7, or higher!

My name is Lee and I am a friendly and qualified teacher of English and a former IELTS examiner. Let me help you to achieve a score of Band 7 or more on your IELTS exam with a tailored course for your specific needs. I can offer tuition and exam preparation support and share with you my techniques to help you to pass the tests.

As well as making my teaching enjoyable, I am able to use my insights from working as an IELTS examiner to make sure you meet the precise IELTS marking criteria in order to get the best Band score possible. I have extensive knowledge of the tests and know what examiners look for in a good answer. Let me use this experience to help you to pass your IELTS exam.

We will start with an assessment of your current level of English and your particular needs. Then, I can go on to plan a course which will strengthen your skills and address your areas of weakness.

I am very experienced in assisting students who need to obtain IELTS very quickly owing to visa, emigration or higher education course requirements. I can provide intensive courses which fit around existing test date bookings.

Courses can be tailored around the following skill areas:

LISTENING
Lots of practice using exam style questions which use a variety of accents. Emphasis is given to all four parts of the listening test in including conversations and following academic lectures.

WRITING
How to structure your task 1 report and task 2 essay. How to describe and analyse graphs, tables and charts. Understanding diagrams and maps. Writing letters and expressing ideas clearly. Checking and correcting your work.

READING
Techniques to save you time under pressure. How to scan a text for the information you need. Skills to help you answer True/False/NG and Yes/No/NG questions. Support to help you deal with the matching headings questions, short-answer, table completion and multiple choice questions.

SPEAKING
Lots of practice on all 3 parts of the speaking exam. How to structure a response. Articulation and pronunciation. Improving Lexical Resource.

All of the materials you will need are provided, hence there will be no need for you to purchase any additional course or textbooks. Band 9 answers are also supplied to you for all of the writing tasks.

I will be happy to answer any questions you have.

Helped me to score a Band 7

Written by Kristof Z
Thanks for being a great teacher. In just a few 2 hour sessions, you taught me techniques that improved my listening, speaking, writing and reading skills. I scored very well in my IELTS exam as I needed a Band 6 but actually achieved Band 7! I would highly recommend you as a starting point in working towards English language perfection.

I passed with a Band 9 in reading and writing!!!

Written by Michelle B
I approached Lee as I needed some help to pass IELTS which was a requirement of me getting residency in Australia. At first, I couldn't get my scores above Band 6 in both reading and writing. After some lessons with Lee, both my confidence and abilities increased significantly. The insider help he was able to offer because of his examining experience was invaluable. I took the test after 3 months of lessons and came out with an overall Band 8.5 but with Band 9 in both reading and writing. I couldn't believe it. I can't think Lee enough for what he has done.

Lee has been such a great teacher in helping me to pass my IELTS exam. After struggling to pass, I contacted Lee as I needed help with the reading tests. It only took a few lessons for him to really help me with my approach and technique.

A wealth of IELTS knowledge!

Written by Ryan M
Over the past few weeks, I have had the pleasure of working with Lee on gaining a skillset ready to pass the IELTS exam. I am trying to gain the points I need for my Australian emigration application.

Lee has been an essential part of me passing the sections. He will assess your skills and structure a way for you to increase these to an IELTS standard. His way of tutoring is very detailed and easy to understand.

Furthermore, he’s very easy to liaise with, very professional and very reassuring.

I have been extremely impressed with Lee as a tutor.

Without him I most certainly would still be trying to create the skills and structure IELTS are looking for within the exam.

IELTS academic exam

Written by Alexandra B
Lee helped me get an 8.5 score at academic level for the IELTS exam in 2 months. He is a really good teacher who explains things clearly, and knows exactly what the examiners are looking for. The techniques he gave me especially helped for reading which was my weakest area. The online sessions worked really well for me as I had a 3 month old baby at the time, so being able to have flexibility and have the lessons at home was a god send. Lee has helped our family one step further to our Australia dreams. I started out with out a clue what I was doing! To very quickly achieving a higher score than I needed. I would definitely recommend him and actually miss our lessons!

Answered my SOS!

Written by Donna H
I initially undertook the IELTS test completely naïve as to what was required and completely froze in the written part, having no idea how to answer either task. Not surprisingly I only scored 5.5!
I then tried to prepare myself for the re-sit by using the plethora of information available on the Internet but this only made me more confused. With only 3 days to go until my test, I contacted Lee in a complete panic and instantly felt reassured by his obvious IELTS knowledge and professional manner.
Despite the very short time frame, he was able to pinpoint exactly what my needs were and teach me the correct techniques to approach both of the written tasks. His good humour also helped to calm my nerves and focus on what was required. When I turned the exam paper over this time, I was able to tackle it much more confidently and subsequently scored a 7.5.
I honestly wouldn't have been able to do that without Lee's guidance and I can't thank or recommend him enough.

Lee is a very professional guy and I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone who is struggling with the dreaded IELTS!!

During our sessions, Lee made me fell at ease at all times and the homework/feedback was a great learning tool also!

A direct and quick way to understand and master IELTS test

Written by Miren T
From the very first lesson, Lee was able to clearly transmit me what did IELTS examiners expect from students while correcting this test. Everything became much more clear (and easy) to me after his explanations, as I felt I really understood what I should do in each part of the test. The rest was practising and practising (and timing!).

His useful tips and particularly his feedback in reports and essays, together with their correspondent model answers, were enormously helpful and certainly accouned for his wide experience regarding this test.

He also gave me the confidence I needed to face the test with a positive attitude.

When I met Lee a short while ago, I couldn't wright in English at all, my reading was awful as well as speaking and listening. Undoubtedly, it was a challenge for both Lee and me to get myself ready for the exam. Yet everything is possible when you've got a desire and a right tutor. Lee didn't just teach me some hint and tips. He taught ME how to approach the tasks, how to tackle the tasks which I was struggling with. As an experienced teacher he recognises the way his student's brain works and according to it he chooses a strategy. He was always well organised and prepared for our sessions, having which on Skype was very convenient.

After firing two face-to-face teachers in a Chinese educational institution, I tried every means in an effort to find a truly professional teacher to help me excel in IELTS. Luckily, I found Lee and he provided me with high-quality online lessons as well as valuable resources to sharpen my competitive edge in every single way. He would ask patiently for my advice on the content of following classes at the end of each lesson and made preparations carefully according to my suggestions. I was not so confident about my ability in Speaking, but I gradually gained confidence because Lee could always find a unique way to compliment and encourage me. I'm so grateful that I have Lee to guide me in the process of preparing for IELTS. I wouldn't be able to score this high without his guidance.

Lee was the most qualified tutor for me

Written by Victoria B
Lee is a rarer tutor for IELTS who really knows what to do. Before I found Lee I had worked with several tutors and also attended a course but Lee was the only one who told the very structure I needed to use in my essays to improve my writing score. I got band 7 easily after several lessons with Lee (before I had got 3 attempts with 6.0-6.5 for writing).
If I had to take IELTS again I would surely work with Lee as his experiece is very valuable and useful.
Thank you Lee for what you do for your students!

IELTS Academic Writing 7.0

Exceptional tutor for a desired score

Written by Vladimir K
I was referred to Lee by a friend of mine who prepared for IELTS (academic) with him and achieved a required score. Since my previous IELTS-a was good but outdated and I needed to score even higher (min 8.0 in all components) for new professional purposes, I was quite attentive to what a tutor could offer. I had a very good impression from the start when I saw a brief introductory video that transcended Lee's confidence, experience and desire to share his knowledge. After running an assessment of all components (full exam-like samples), Lee offered me a study course tailored to my needs. It became obvious immediately that Lee who is a former IELTS examiner knows not only the nitty-gritty of the subject but all ins and outs that are necessary for a solid result. Lee provided an excellent well-organized approach to tackle Writing and Reading a great deal. I truly appreciated Lee’s outstanding feedback on my Speaking practice - mock full sessions became literally precious moments to get a rhythm and pace of the Speaking part (please record yourself while skyping). It was invaluable to hear all the tips from Lee that you would not find anywhere else. As any other tests, IELTS has its certain structure and logic that can be even better understood after talking to an examiner and experienced teacher like Lee is. If you want to boost the exam performance up, you need to know how the examiner thinks and what s/he assesses. Be sure, Lee is a go-to person for IELTS prep. Want to score high, then look no further.

Proficient, Professional and Caring

Written by Benyamin A
From the very first email, Lee had always proved that he was serious when it came to his students. He replied every email promptly and patiently answered every question that I had.
In our first Skype meeting we arranged my preliminary diagnosis skill test and scheduled the class times. Everything went smoothly to the end, thanks to his commitment and knowledge.
He taught me everything that was wrong with my skill by the fifth session and I had been working on all of my weaknesses since then. He was realistic about my potential and helped me to keep my expectations reasonable. This way I knew what I needed to work on in a very short time. And guess what?! It worked marvelously!
Thank you Lee.

IELTS score improvement

Written by Alex T
When I took the IELTS exam for the first time, I achieved the score 7.5 with L 7.5 R 8.5 W 6.5 S 6.5 . However, I needed to achieve at least 7.0 in each section in order to apply to Oxford. After only two weeks of lessons with Lee Murray, I succeeded in achieving an overall score of 8.0 with L 8 R 8.6 W 7 S 7.5 . He pointed out which are my weaknesses and followed a plan to improve my performance. I found the lessons not only useful but also enjoyable.
Thank your for your invaluable help.

Best IELTS teacher

Mr. Lee knows how to give the tips and tricks to IELTS. I had tsken my first exam without knowing the tips and wasting my time at the exam looking for answers and i got overall band of 6.

After taking a 10 session with Lee and only a second attempt at the exam and i was able to achieve 7.0 overall which was a good jump ans a requirement for my higher degree..

I trust that his method helped me alot, and he is determined to make you achieve what you looking for. Even his feedback throughout the course is quite justified without exgeration he will pinpoint what is missing and what you could do.

Methods & Skills you taught me set me up to PASS!

Written by Julie P
If I had not of found Lee I would not have learnt the vital methods and skills to pass EILTS at the level I needed. Learning from Lee enabled me to work through the test papers in a way that saved time and found the answers. The only thing I would do differently if I had to do it again, would be to have lessons sooner with Lee before booking my EILTS Test. I sat a few tests before my lessons with Lee and obviously did not get the outcome I needed, because I did not know the methods! Invest in tutoring first, then when you understand the methods book IELTS! Simple! Now its my sons turn, he will book in with Lee, learn the methods, book the IELTS test...Good luck!

A must when preparing for IELTS

Written by Laura Rey P
Lee was incredibly helpful preparing me for IELTS. I had taken several courses and teachers before and I couldn’t reach the band seven I needed in writing. Six classes with Lee were enough to understand were I was making mistakes and to improve my score in just two weeks. He adapted very well to my schedule and was very flexible with the hours. I would recommend him to anyone who needs a specific score in IELTS and can’t afford to waste any time.
Subject:

Written by Lysa G
I was hopeless and had no idea why I always couldn't get 7 in speaking. Lee helped me understand what the examiner is looking for and how I will be graded in the IELTS speaking test. He bombarded me with lots of questions during speaking session on skype. I was able to practice a lot. He also discovered some flaws and weaknesses that hindered my performance and helped me find ways to overcome them. My score jumped to 7 in a short time! I can't thank you enough.

Lee speaks 100% Ielts language.
I took lessons with other ‘Ielts’ teachers but it turned out that they were just general English teachers and I waste my money.
Lee has taught me Ielts's techniques and how to pay attention to those. I took the exam and I feel by far more confident in comparison with the other times.
I highly recommend taking Lee’s lessons, especially if you did not get the desired score. Lee helps you to face the Ielts exam using the right approach. I'd like to add that he went an extra mile to help me. His flexibility, experience, and insights make the difference when it comes to improving your exam performance.
Despite that the lessons' price is quite high, his background and his competencies let you not spent more money for further lessons and/or retake the Ielts exam. Try it, and he will not let you down.

My Ielts technique knowledge and my control of the language have been improved significantly thanks to Lee

Amazing tutor, highly recommended

Written by Marie Sharon Z
Lee is very friendly and approachable person with amazing skill to teach. I have learned a lot from day one during our sessions. He is patient and his criticism is always constructive. He evaluates needs of a student and based on that he knows what and how he should be teaching. Apart from that he boosted my overall confidence at using English and helped me to understand not only the IELTS but lot more about the language. He was very time flexible and he could easily adjust to my busy schedule. I learned a lot about IELTS and understand it far better. That includes knowing what mistakes I used to do before and how to improve it. I also enjoyed practising speaking with him which dramatically improved my vocabulary. All the sessions were worth every penny.

IELTS writing module (GT)

Written by Sarah F
I took IELTS twice but I have been struggling with writing module and was stuck at 6.0/6.5, however, I was aiming for 7.5. I knew I needed an IELTS teacher and I found Lee at tutorfair who not only gave me scores on my writings but also explained me the structure in detail.

He also taught me how to evaluate my essay myself based on all 4 marking criterias which really helped me in evaluating myself.

Moreover, I took reading tips for headings and paragraph matching and in just one day I learned how to get all the headings correct.

If you follow his tips, I am sure you will get your desired score!
